The Namibian Qualifications Authority (NQA) recently confirmed that the Business School of Excellence (BSE) has been accredited to present its Higher Certificate in Logistics Management. This qualification presents an opportunity for employers to improve the abilities of their logisticians and the overall industry, and also for individuals to enrol for a qualification that is relevant to the occupational field. Namibian-based BSE administers this programme and will certify the qualification in BSE’s name too. BSE has recently awarded the first group of thirteen Namibian students with this Higher Certificate, at a graduation ceremony held in Windhoek.
Hedendaagse onderwysers en opvoeders moet hul vaardighede en kennis deurlopend opknap, want die uitdagings in die huidige onderwysstelsel verskil van die uitdagings van 'n paar jaar gelede.
Die minister van onderwys, dr. David Namwandi, het dié mening tydens die opening van die tweede nasionale konferensie oor die voortgesette professionele ontwikkeling (CPD) van opvoeders gelug. Volgens Namwandi bestaan eenstemmigheid onder Namibiërs dat dit nou die geleentheid is om verandering in die onderwysstelsel mee te bring. Hy het gesê die hersiening van die nasionale leerplan is in die finale stadium en die kabinet sal binnekort ingelig word.
WINDHOEK - Following the revelation that Namibia is experiencing a shortage of skills in the teaching profession, the Business School of Excellence (BSE) and First National Bank Namibia (FNB) on Tuesday signed a financing agreement for teaching courses.
The agreement will make education more accessible for teachers wishing to further their qualifications. The deal will provide preferential interest rates on study loans for those who want to better their education through the BSE. The deal, signed by Ester Kali, FNB's executive for retail and business banking, and Helga Busing-Volschenk, the director and chief operating officer at the BSE in Windhoek, will provide financing for teachers studying towards an Advanced Certificate in Education and an Honours Bachelor of Education degree at North West University in South Africa.
FNB Namibia and the Business School of Excellence (BSE) have entered into a partnership that will offer financial support to teachers studying for an Advanced Certificate in Education and Honours degree in Education at the North West University (PUK) in South Africa.
The aim of the partnership is to allow teachers to upgrade their qualifications through affordable interest rates offered by FNB and is effective as of 1 August 2013. The shortage of qualified teachers has led to the Ministry of Education to advertise approximately 2000 teaching posts for 2014.
